Please note Deputy Roelofs will be leaving Fife Lake Township as of Februayr 18, 2018.  Deputy Eric Meyers will be our new Deputy, he is a resident of Fife Lake Township.

My name is Deputy Jason Roelofs and I work for the Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Office.  I have been employed with the department for almost 13 years.  During my career I’ve held several roles within the department.  Besides being a road patrol deputy, I’ve held the position of Liaison officer.  For four years I was assigned to Kingsley Area Schools.  The program was reduced in manpower, therefore my responsibility grew.  I was then responsible for every school on the East half of Grand Traverse County.  I’ve also been in the position of CPO before in two different townships.  The first being Peninsula Twp and secondly I was assigned to Acme Twp.

                I’m a member of our Counties Dive Team and have been so since 2005.  We train once a month and year round to prepare for the many different types of weather we encounter in Northern Michigan.  Just recently I was added as an Airboat Operator.  The counties airboat is only in operation approximately six months a year, roughly November to April.  The airboat team consists of four operators and we also train once a month in conjunction with the dive team.

If you would like to get in contact with me, you can leave a voicemail at the sheriff’s office at 231-995-5000, leave a message at the Fife Lake Township office at 231-879-5302 or email me at  Of course if it’s an emergency, please call 911.

Thank you,

Deputy Jason Roelofs
